A musical took the top spot at the box office this weekend, but numbers are still now where they should be.


West Side Story took the top spot with $10.5M and globally sits at $14.9M.

Second place went to Encanto with $9.42M bringing its domestic total to $71.34M, and globally it sits at $151.84M

Ghostbusters: Afterlife took third place $7.1M. The domestic total stands at $112M and $164.59M globally.

Fourth place went to House of Gucci with $4.06M for a new domestic total of $41.03M. Globally it sits at $93.02M.

The Eternals landed in fifth place with $3.1M for a new domestic total of $161.21M. Globally it sits at $395.31M.

  2. FROZEN II ($19M)
  3. KNIVES OUT ($9M)
  5. BLACK XMAS ($4M)
